Monkey Bread

After Scott and I spent our first Christmas together (we had been dating for about 4 or 5 years prior to actually spending a Christmas together), I learned one of his family traditions on Christmas day was making monkey bread. I'd also never heard of or had monkey bread before I met Scott. The only Christmas tradition we had was getting together, playing cards and eating on Christmas Eve. Then Christmas morning opening presents under the tree.

Since my family is from Minneapolis and Scott's is from Milwaukee, since we've moved in together we decided to spend Thanksgiving with one family and Christmas with the other. This year, we got to spend Christmas in Minneapolis. I decided to plan on making monkey bread Christmas day as I had never made it and just thought it would be fun for the two of us to make something together.

I truly loved this! It was sweet and savory and filled you up! It's also really easy to make, so I'd definitely recommend making it.
